Art Teacher Substitute

I was an elementary school art teacher today. I just let them draw pictures. These are my two favorites, both from *kindergarteners:

The artist admitted to being **inspired by Van Gogh's "Starry Night." I like how he simplified it while maintaining its essence. I also like how the moon has morphed into a spiral in the kindergartener's version.

And I'm not sure if the second figure in this next budding artist's work is a sweaty fish with hair, or a fish-like person with sweat, but it is suh-weet, in my opinion:

The colors on both were better in person. My cell phone isn't the best. Aren't the pictures great?

* Five-year-olds (or five-and-a-half-year-olds, as they like to point out).

** Very very unpretentiously and innocently admitted that he enjoys that picture, which was one of the prints of great art hanging on the wall.


  1. That is *so* cool. I think elementary school art teacher must be the best job ever.

  2. It's actually difficult to maintain order and keep everyone getting along, but I'm sure it's very rewarding. I enjoyed it.

  3. I love the pictures they created. Amazing.
